Says Martin: “My thanks go out to all those who have pledged support so far. Bardskull is over 40% funded in just a few days. That’s personally very energising.”
Bardskull is the record of three journeys made in the year before Martin turned 50.This is not a book about myth or story. It is a sequence of incantations and a series of battles. For each of the three journeys, Martin walks alone into a forest in the heart of Dartmoor and waits. This book can be read as a fable, as a memoir, as autofiction, as an attempt to undomesticate myth.
